When asked for his thoughts about drawing Chelsea, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino told Sky Sports: “It’s another London derby.

“This will be our fourth London derby. We started the Carabao Cup against Watford, then we played against West Ham at the Olympic Stadium, tonight was Arsenal and now a semi-final against Chelsea.

“Chelsea is a great team and it’s going to be very tough but we are excited.”
